Greatest Classic Rock Songs


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits

This song defiantly should be up there, A great song for sure

One of the best opening guitar riffs


142 Good Vibrations - Beach Boys

If this is a real list and this is a real placing for this particular song, then all credibility is gone.

One of the best, and probably one of the only songs with a therimin

143 Light My Fire - The Doors

This song knocked the Beatles out of the number one spot and the Beatles are quite possibly the greatest band of all time. Pretty good for a first hit song.

This is definitely top ten worthy. The Doors are the most brilliant band of their time. Them and The Beatles are king. The Beatles pioneered music and then The Doors turned it upside down. Light My Fire was a massive hit and it is an amazing song. Long live Jim Morrison.

I fail to see how Know Your Enemy by Green Day is above this. Green Day isn't classic rock and they're only okay. The doors is classic rock and they're great. I'm not even a huge doors fan but I think this song should be up higher

It couldn't get much higher.

145 Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann's Earth Band

Definitely one of the best covers everything recorded.

146 I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock 'N Roll Band) - The Moody Blues
147 Still Loving You - Scorpions V 1 Comment
148 Unforgiven - Metallica
149 Anarchy In the Uk - Sex Pistols
150 Twist and Shout - The Beatles
151 The Razors Edge - AC/DC
152 Iron Man - Black Sabbath

I love this song. I don't really care for metal.

Even in the 2015s, no band can produce the rhythm of the Black Country as they did.

153 American Woman - The Guess Who

I say... This song is absolutely great! Try to listen to it and find out the greatness of randy bachman!

154 You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones

This song deserves to be much higher. Along with Sympathy for the Devil and Gimme Shelter, this is one of my 3 favorite Rolling Stones songs. - stevekubin

A semi-hidden b side classic

155 Cat's in the Cradle - Harry Chapin V 1 Comment
156 Amazing - Aerosmith

Anyone who doesn't like this song is crazy, This song is Amazing. Thus the title! This is one song by Aerosmith that is definitely underplayed.

158 Unchained - Van Halen

Damn the guitar though

Piano man? Really? Counless hours of headbanging there.

159 Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin

Why in the world is immigrant song in this position? This is absolutely RIDICULOUS!

One of Zep's greatest! Immigrant song is perfectly written and the timing of the music is perfect for the words. Feel the beat & listen close, you can practically see in your mind the Vikings rowing the warships! & the war cry of the Vikings is so very perfectly worked in. I understand this list is of people voting for their favorites and I am ok with that. BUT a true music lover and/or connoisseur has agree this is a perfect song. & that's all I have to say about that!

160 Send Me an Angel - Scorpions V 1 Comment
